in this general session? >> they want a state based. the obama administration very much wants the governors to start a state based exchange so we can run it. we'll technically they want us to expand medicaid, not so much the exchange. we're going to have some type of exchange the supreme court ruled they can't penalizeize us by existing dollars in we don't expand medicaid. it's already a huge budget buster. we want to have a good safety net for the poor but if we don't have dramatic reform of medicaid which is broken system, expanding it would be irresponsible and would break our budgets. president obama himself said four years ago but that is what we are asking for us to do now. >> greta: if the federal government has to set up the exchange, is there federal money set aside or obamacare provide for money on to set up these exchanges, it might be a gaping hole in the legislation if it is not there? >> there is money right now for both state and federal exchanges. they extended the deadline for about two years to get grant money to set up state based exchanges. the federal government wants t

they had going into this. everything that george bush did the obama administration said we'll do the opposite. if george bush led from the front we'll lead from behind. george bush went in on the ground from iraq, we'll go in from the air in libya. george bush used contractors to provide security. we use the libyan guys to provide security in libya. the problem was the libyans weren't up to the job. the administration looked at all these countries. they helped topple dictators, now they were dictators but pro-american dictators and kept peace with israel in place 40 years. now what are you seeing? country after country in chaos or electing anti-american, islamist muslim brotherhood leaders. bill: what you're arguing they took all the decisions and flipped them on their head 180 degree turn. >> yeah. bill: how is that working out. >> not very well but they have gotten away with it so far. you and fox news have been carrying out the call but no other mainstream media is paying attending. they didn't pay attention until it became a sex scandal with david petraeus and everybody paid

. in the meantime, the obama administration has commended israel for agreeing to the egyptian cease-fire proposal which was announced after delivery clinton met with egyptian leaders. what happens if it doesn't hold? and what is really happening here politically? monica crowley is a radio talk show host in the middle east and kiersten powers is a columnist. both are fox news contributors. i want to start with you, monica, because you know a lot about the middle east. usually you don't send the secretary of state over until you are pretty close to a deal. now it appears a deal has been reached. it was reported earlier that it was unusual for the israelis to agree to a cease-fire on the day of a bus bombing. when the attack had been ramped up to that level. nonetheless, they have done it. he spoke with him directly to encourage him to take the deal and he has. but what you think is going on? >> time will tell as to the durability of this cease-fire. time always does tell in the middle east and a breakdown sooner rather than later. we shall see. but you are right. jennifer is right to say that the i

to be his special envoy and the united states spent two years and the obama administration, some political capital, trying to broker a negotiation between mahmoud abbas and prime minister netanyahu and ultimately was not successful. i do agree over the past couple of years, there's been a pause in the peace process, you know, to try to see if conditions, you know, could be created to bring us back to a negotiating table. but i would also say that, you know, it's -- the environment today is much different than it was even four years ago. you have had the arab spring and everyone that's involved in this is doing careful recalculations of their strategic interests and that's even going on i think in the heart of the negotiations that are ongoing for a cease-fire. >> just to follow up, are you implying too many visits just means it's a bad situation there? >> well, you'll recall, the environment between 2003 and 2008, you know, the united states was involved in an act of war in the middle east. so again, the agenda to some extent drives, you know, where a secretary of state spends the bulk of
wants. so, as far as emphasis around the world, that's something that's coming from the obama administration. and look, the middle east is an area that obviously has been a problem i would say for decades but really for centuries, maybe my len yeah. so that there are periods of more focus or less focus, you know, is not that surprising. i think the white house wanted to give an opportunity for direct bilateral talks between the two sides and israel or in that region. and obviously, they have not always worked as well as one would like it to happen. >> jonathan, we heard stories today of hillary clinton and president obama sharing a plane ride and sort of reminiscing about the past four years and talking back about campaign times and really is amazing how much has changed and how far they have come in four short years. >> absolutely. you know, just four years ago these guys were or this man and this woman at each other's throats politically. some of the aides hated each other. you would not have necessarily expected to see this coming together but, you know, really started on t
long distance. >>> the cease-fire is seen as a major foreign policy victory for the obama administration. the president was heavily involved to making calls to egypt and israel. mahmoud abbas even took middle of the night phone calls and he dispatched secretary of state hillary clinton to close the cease-fire deal, which she did with shuttle diplomacy between the west bank and cairo. joining me is republican strategist boris epstein. richard, i'll begin with you, richard graham has been a hard critic of president obama. they are now hailing the cease-fire deal. they released a statement yesterday praising prime minister benjamin netanyahu for reaching the truce. however, did you notice no mention of president obama or secretary clinton? what do you make of that? >> honestly, that statement was sad and pathetic they cannot take off the partisan blinders at a time like this. and i think what it does is it hurts their credibility going forward in the international stage. they were ones very much on susan rice's back about benghazi and the possibility of her being secretary of
the last couple of weeks, the obama administration has been extremely supportive of israel. that's one thing. and the second thing they've done is work with the new egyptian government and that was not necessarily a done deal, either. so they've given us this cease-fire. and so we had a pretty, you know, serious military exchange. but the american-egyptian relationship was not frayed. the american-israeli relationship was not frayed. and importantly, the israeli-egyptian relationship, while frayed, is still functioning. so i think they've done a reasonably good job of stabilizing things. now, morsi has taken this opportunity to create a bit of a constitutional crisis there, and there we're going to have to stick to our guns and be the pro-reform force evening for somebody who is trying to usurp power. >> brown: does it suggest that president obama might have to spend more capital and time on the middle east then perhaps he wanted in a second term? this actually happened while he was in asia. >> it did happen while he was in asia. i agree with david, the irony was during the campaign be
it could throw the country back into a recession if congress and the obama administration just can't make a deal. for many americans, the idea of a fiscal cliff is a hard one to wrap their brain around, but my next guest says the brain may be exactly what is needed get washington out of this whole mess. he is david rock, co-founder and author of "your brain at work." good morning. >> good morning to you, radi, good to be here with you. >> i have a lot to get through with you, but you say that our brains are inherently wired to categorize other people in one of two ways. in groups and out groups. can you explain what that means? >> absolutely. it's an inle function, and we see it in many other animals, including mammals as well. it's not just an american thing or western thing. it's very much a part of who we are, to decide if everyone we're speaking to is on our team or on another team. millions of years we lived in quite small communities so, we tend to only have a small number of people in our in group, and everyone else is kind of dangerous and potentially not to be trusted. it's very
for the obama administration and what in the long term? ite many important to consider -- it's important to understand this means iran is still on the march. why did hamas attack israel now? one objective was to draw israel into a broader war and get egypt to rescind its treaty with israel. and also giving it arms to attack israel. iran wants to put israel back on its heels and it wants to distract from its own nuclear weapons program and the proxy war it's fighting in syria. it changed the topic. we still have a dangerous regime and dangerous ideology of islamicism, the chief proponents which is the iranian regime. nothing in this cease-fire addresses that unfortunately. heather: what about in terms of what this means in terms of our relationship with egypt moving forward? >> a lot of people see this as a positive development which is unfortunate. egypt still has an islamist government that won very narrowly 52-48. it's very anti-israel and anti-american. it talks about restoring the caliphate in jerusalem. they are ready to re -- they can learn from pakistan that basically you can take
meetings. does she need to go back there? does the obama administration need to get involved? do they need to be worried that you have the egyptian president now who seems tow to be more powerful than he was three days ago? >> seems to be. it depends. we'll see what the outcome of the talks are today. the u.s. officials have to be concerned. not only -- again, just for egypt, but for the entire arab spring. they see here, you know, power being seized. they're wondering -- they know that they've got a financial sword that they can hang over egypt's head. egypt wants u.s. support. diplomatic too. in order to maintain that, it is going have to cut off that supply of smuggled arms that are the source of these weapons. you know, hamas right now is asking that the airport in gaza as well as the seaport be opened up. i don't think that's going to happen. i think morsi is going to be under a tremendous amount of pressure to prove that he can do what's needed. >> let's turn the topic here because this is something we're going to be watching very closely tomorrow, and it really is getting a lot of a
in the middle east forever but we'll have to see about that. thank you. gregg: the obama administration announcing new rules now that the healthcare law is beginning to kick in, but many americans don't even know what to expect. so we'll look at what is on tap and what it means for you and your doctor. ainsley: a business gets shot down in its attempt to opt out of the law for religious reasons, but the fight is far from over. we'll explain. hey! did you know that honey nut cheerios has oats that can help lower cholesterol? and it tastes good? sure does! wow. it's the honey, it makes it taste so... well, would you look at the time... what's the rush? be happy. be healthy. playing sports is just my whole life. what's the rush? looking back, if it wasn't for shriners hospital, things would just be really, really different. i lost my leg when i was a kid. there was a time when i felt like i wasn't going to be able to walk again... it was a pretty bad accident but shriners showed me who i could be again. they turned my whole life around. they call it 'love to the rescue' and it really works
there. jennifer, thank you. jon: right now new questions for the obama administration and its changing story on what happened during the benghazi terror attack. top republicans on capitol hill want the nation's top intelligence official to explain what they say is his co conflicting testimony from the original talking points that seemed to minimize the chances that this was a terror attack. the director of national intelligence told officials in closed doors that no one in the intelligence community edited out any referral to terrorism. monday night they said it was the intelligence community that made substantive changes to the talking points. which is it? four americans died in that benghazi attack including our ambassador chris stevens. chris wallace the anchor of ""fox news sunday"" joins us now. chris, there seems to be conflicting information from the director of national intelligence and republicans say they want to get to the bottom of it. >> it's more than seems to be it apparently absolutely is conflicting. when you said which is it i hope you're not looking to me for an answ
's address at the university in burma. they rejected me. this isn't the first member of president obama's administration to doze off. remember joe biden nodded off during the president's budget speech last year. he was thinking what he would do if he was president. former chief economic advisor larry summers could not keep his eyes open during the meeting. 5 hour energy all around, kids. >> alisyn: you can not fault hillary clinton with that travel schedule. talk about a wild encounter, we take to you texas for this one. two men were walking to a car when a deer attacked them. he jumped into the bed of the pick up and called police. >> he put his front paws on my feet, got my pack of cigarettes and started chewing them. he broke a police officer's rib, kicked a police officer in the leg. >> alisyn: the animal also caused some damage to the truck. it took more than five men to get the deer under control. >> steve: you don't hear much about how deer are apparently hooked on nicotine down there. >> alisyn: right. >> brian: remember the deer that came alive in that movie with -- in tommy bo
for the obama administration and its unshakeable support for israel's right to defend defend itself and israel's security. this is the microcosm of what this conflict is about. we're doing our utmost to minimize civilian casualties on the palestinian side. if palestinian civilians are hurt for us it's a defeat. supporters of hamas were giving out candies in the streets to kids to celebrate the bus bombing. >> what does all of this have to do with the ongoing negotiations? secretary clinton has said de-escalation. she'll meet twice with prime minister netanyahu. do you think a de-escalation is possible in the wake of this bus explosion and what we've been told according to the bbc, retaliation with a strike in gaza city? >> de-escalation is not going to be possible if hamas doesn't stop shooting at us. the last eight days, 5.5 million israelis, well over half of our entire population, have been under rocket attack. now they're under bus bombing attack. hamas shows no sign of backing down. yesterday they fired over 200 rockets at israelis, killed 200 people. that's not a good sign for de-escalat
is what he said. >> i hope that the u.s. administration, that the obama administration can make a change by saying, look, you have to help without any condition. >> can you, final question, can you see that as playing out as a possible solution in the future? >> i think this gaza crisis was a reminder or a wake-up call for the administration. here it is, the israeli conflict is alive and we have to deal with it. when a cease-fire is reached, when the smoke settles and the dust settles, i think the u.s. will go back to a more serious involvement in the process, trying to bring the parties closer together, perhaps advancing negotiations between israel and the moderates and the palestinian authority. >> dan arbell, scholar for middle eastern policy. we appreciate it this morning. thank you. >> thank you. happy thanksgiving. >> same to you, sir. coming up at 6:30 eastern time, we'll be talking to stuart holiday, the head of the meridian international sent they are a works with the state department. >>> the latest on the breaking news with a bus explosion on tel aviv on a main street in tel a
to defend the obama administration. >>wouldn't do it. this is opposite day. >> i actually think the president's, dare i say, i've been critical of hs his handling of the middle east and specifically the u.s. relationship with israel, i think he's handled this well. i completely reject this is commitly motivated or about american jewish vote or the election. there's one time he doesn't have to play to the american jewish community it's right now, and i think he recognizes that israel was unprovoked, that they are dealing with a government in gaza that the u.s. and the europeans all label a terrorist organization, 12 to 15,000 rockets sitting in gaza built up over years, israel's in the last few weeks been subjected to over a thousand of them, i think his assessments is, it's a really complicated issue. of course he's horrified by the deaths on both sides, but the idea that israel can't respond the way it's responding, is completely unreasonable. and i think he is handling it well and that he's focused on egypt. egypt is -- morsi is the lynchpen here. if there's any stabilization
if things got bad. in this era, when i look at the amount of time -- the obama administration more so than the bush administration, when officials meet throughout the region, and the discussion attempt to correlate with china, there seems to be a lot of effort to try to coordinate. jim steinberg was the fourth member of this panel, looking at the island dispute and said, they were shocked and surprised by the level of miscommunication, miss assessment, and the dangers of that between china and japan. it raises the question of whether or not -- i agree. i know china wants respect -- but whether or not what you're seeing is a strategic game or tactical game by china to use this potential mis assessment to look like the unstable part in some of this to basically helped push out its own interest. that worries me a little bit. >> i think the essential question is not of domination or respect, but about whether [indiscernible] will be static or dynamic. there is no way nations are going to agree on what the consider to be the interests. you drop a little bit of energy into this thing and it beco
organizations re-operate from gaza the future is war. >> reporter: president obama stood by israel during the fighting and still does. his administration is now planning to ask congress to increase funding for israel's missile defense system. the iron dome system intercepted more than 80% of the missiles hamas launched during the conflict. and israel has a man in custody suspected of planting the bomb on a tel aviv bus that wounded 15 people. a police spokesman says the israeli arab is a member of hamas. more arrests are expected. some israelis are expressing disappointment that israel's response wasn't harsher. hamas has declared november 22nd a permanent national holiday. >> susan mcginnis in washington. have a good weekend. thank you. egypt's president mohamed morsi has given himself new sweeping powers. he declared the court can't challenge any of his decisions. he ordered the retrial of former president hosni mubarak and top aides. he said his power grab is to protect the revolution that toppled mubarak. critics say he's appointed himself egypt's new pharaoh. coming up, highway horro
. that explosion in israel could only be seen as a setback to this administration's efforts to try to help broker a ceasefire in the region. president obama sending secretary of state hillary clinton there to talk with leaders throughout the region. and really to try to add a sense of urgency and to nudge them towards a ceasefire, so this morning not only are they condemning the attack but this is clearly unwelcome news. jay carney released this statement earlier today saying these attacks against innocent israeli civilians are outrageous. the united states will stand with our israeli allies and p - provide whatever assistance is necessary to identify and bring to justice the perpetrators of this attack. the united states reaffirms our unshakable commitment to security and our deep friendship and solidarity with the israeli people. secretary of state clinton has met with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu as well as a leader of the palestinian authority, mahmoud abbas. she is sending a strong message that they should be de-escalating the violence and also the united states' commitment to
obama's cabinet for the small business administration. ken, let me start with you. black friday, black thanksgiving night, cyber monday, why do we need a small business saturday on top of it? >> i think the most important thing is we want to celebrate small businesses and celebrate the communities where small businesses are, and what we've seen over the last two years, this is the third year of small business saturday. we've really built a tremendous movement, and small businesses have seen increased in sales, and that's what it's about. what small businesses want are more customers. >> true though, ken, that small businesses kind of needed this holiday because they were getting pinched and squeezed out by things like cyber monday and black friday? >> i think the most important thing is we wanted to celebrate small businesses. this is not big box retailers against small businesses or cyber monday, there's room for all three. what we really felt is we wanted to really put attention to small businesses, the importance that small businesses have to our economy, creating half of the priva
interested in status quo? >> one of the things the administration has come under a lot of fire for is it's been left focused on judicial nominations than it has been on electoral politics. at the level of the scoupreme court, of course president obama cares. if ginsburg leaves, harris might be a natural appointment. the real fireworks will begin if someone like justice kennedy or scalia leaves because that could change it to a majority liberal court. i think he'll go with a more conservative choice like judge merritt gar land on the d.c. circuit. i think the place to look for now is lower down, which is to say there are over 100 vacancies. keep in mind the federal judiciaries has about 870 members, so for that to be that many vacancies is striking and obama seems to care less about that than his predecessors. >> so to use a sports analogy, there needs to be a deep bench to fill the bench at the supreme court. kenji, great to have you here. happy thanksgiving to you and yours. >>> coming up, shoppers may be dealing with some extra crowds on black friday. we're talking about the protesters
said. >> president obama came out and defended her. if you want to talk talk to me. she went out on behalf of the administration. don't you put your potential secretary of state or figurehead to and the intelligent questions and come out and provide the information or is she out there like a puppet? >> one would think that machine involved in the intelligence briefing would and the right questions. the president only shows up for half of the intelligence prevings and when he was trying to defend or pick a fight with the republicans over susan rice, he made a statement that she knew nothing about beng f. she doesn't know about benghazi, why trot her out on the sunday shows. this is the wrong answer for secretary of state. hillary clinton's done an exceptional job and the president needs to show he will make a bipartisan play and i think john mccane would be the right person right now. >> that ain't happening but that is it an interesting choice. >> pete had too much turkey yesterday. and iconic roller could i have ther is under water and it may be a tourist attraction. constructio
